Thanks for everyone's help so far - we're still thinking hard about the name for our little boy

Short list is

oscar
Arthur
Magnus nn Gus
Arlo

What do people rate from the above list? Also are there are any other obvious nicknames for Magnus (as I think it needs one - not sure why)

I don't like Oscar or Arthur, but the other two are great!

I like them all apart from Magnus - its a very ugly name.

I like Oscar, Magnus and Arthur.

Arthur Oscar Arlo all lovely names. Mag/Magpie nn? grin

Thanks guys,
I should have included George as well

Any strong favourites?

Magnus is my favourite, but I prefer nn Max or Mags.

Magnus is great, I would use nn Mags.
Also like George, Arthur and Oscar.
Less keen on Arlo, maybe because it makes me think of the town Harlow.

Love Arlo

Wow what a great list love them all! Oscar, Arthur and George are very popular around here not sure if popularity is an issue for you.

If I had to choose I would pick Magnus or Arthur! Lovely!

I know a few Arthur's Georges and oscars, 3 magnus's and 2 Arlos, love Arthur or George from your list

The girl from TOWIE has just called her baby Arlo so I can imagine that's about to get v popular....

TempsPerdu Sat 20-Jun-15 21:14:28

I'd go for Arthur or Magnus, depending on how much popularity bothers you - Arthur's got pretty trendy lately! Oscar's nice too, but it's becoming ubiquitous round here - loads of them around. Not a fan of Arlo - think it's faddy and will date. George is OK but unexciting.

Oscar - Over used and over run with them
Arthur - Too dusty. Prefer Art or Arty as a more funky modern take on it but that's just my taste
Magnus - Like a lot. I like Scandy Chic.
George - Yuk. Just no.
Arlo - Over faddy, trendy, will date hugely and reminds me of Harlow.

my husbands name is Oscar, he said he got made fun of in school for it, but I will tell you this he is a strong, hard working, successful (handsome smile and loving man. I think its a strong name smile

Love Magnus, like Oscar and Arthur, lukewarm on Arlo.
